Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok. Tenderly.

A beautiful female voice – it is always something greater than simply a voice. In case of Olga Voychenko – it is considerably more. To say that three and a half octaves are hidden (more precisely, revealed) in it – means to say nothing. It is not enough to have a valuable, high-quality instrument – it is desirable to master it as well. Olga – has mastered it so that we can only be grateful to her. Especially when she sings in lowercase – then, the thought flashes that in Ukraine, presumably, there is simply nobody to compare with her. It is impossible to pass by the voice that shrouds softly, and embarrasses, and lulls, and strains, makes you wait for the next note – and this expectation is so delightful... However, as well as the reward for it... There is something in her singing so brightly real that it hardly ever happens now – it was inherent in jazz times of Ella and Etta, therefore it goes beyond the present time. Thus, it seems to me, the voice of Olga Voychenko is directly related to that fundamental layer without which jazz is impossible at all. And, consequently, it is always modern, actual, as well as any deep jazz. By the way, a great role in creation of such atmosphere was played by Sergey Kapelyushko's guitar. Tender, transparent, masterly, it took the party of the second violin – and successfully replaced a complete band. There are no blank spaces in the album – everything is harmoniously filled. With sounds – and with pauses. That is, probably, it. It only remains to add that a new album is to be released soon. We have been waiting long – "Tenderly" has already become a real rarity. Actually, as far as I now, there are only a few copies of it left in free sale. It seems to be good, but I feel – a bit sorry. Such music must exist in abundance – always...

Anna Mia Quintet. Miasophy. /mini-pack/.

First, it's just beautiful – and, moreover, not that simple. Anna Mia Quintet musicians have recorded a seemingly chamber album, but this music would be no less appropriate on a large stage. Very intimate, with a bunch of soft pauses and undertones in its colors – and, at the same time, very prominent, voluminous. Interesting..

BUDU band. Vydykh Vdykh. (2CD). /premium, eco-pack/. (Exhale Inhale)

...And – freedom, needed in treatment of the form and details. This is what this album is comprised of – well, and a jolt of haphazardness, to spell out in words the somewhat absurd lyricism of the world capable of joyfully and sadly beautiful acts. Even if it doesn't (?) make sense. Exhale and inhale, mind and heart, because otherwise – it does not work, it does not dance.

Laura Marti. Shine. /digi-pack/.

..on the one hand – the fantasy of jazz musicians. And on the other, all these laces of motions and patterns are thought over and embodied so confidently and easily that this ease allows one to not focus too much, but skip and let it go to the back of one’s mind right away. Instead, one listens to the main melodic line, the beauty and the flexible power of the voice..

Laura Marti, Kristina Marti. Try to feel. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.

It is a living flow that erodes and connects the banks – the universal language that remembers all dialects, but does not preserve them, gives them space for movement and development. Actually, this is what the entire album is about: the form is changeable, try and feel what does not depend on it – and therefore has the power to change it. And may the power be good.

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok, Pavlo Shepeta. Spivanochky moi. Ukrainian folk songs. /eco-pack/. (My Songs)

The recording is luxurious – perhaps, one could hardy put it in other words. This is something that so far we have not had: a vocal and instrumental album of Ukrainian folk songs at the intersection of jazz, chamber and symphonic, variety art music (such as, for example, songs by Frank Sinatra or Astrud Gilberto)...

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Ukrainian bass song. /digi-pack/

In his time, Igor Zakus became virtually the first jazz bass-player in Ukraine who released a solo album. Thus, the new album by Igor Zakus is what nobody seems to have done before in the Ukrainian jazz. And the word "song" in the title "Ukrainian Bass Song" appears far not by chance. Generally speaking, this is also an album of duets

LoTus, Rosava. LoTus feat. Rosava.

As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work. Just because it is their... It’s no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.

Yelena Popova. Voices From My Soul. /digi-pack/

Yelena Popova strikes with universality, it is difficult to define where she succeeds better – in energetic "hits" or in lyric, delicate ballads. Here she sounds with a bright flash, promises an explosion – and does not cheat, grants powerful emotional splashes. And in a minute – softly, almost in whisper lulls in cozy intonations, causes quiet tremor with her ability to breathe transparently in thick autumn color...

ManSound. In the Name of Life... (in memory of Vladimir Mikhnovetsky)

Volodymyr Mihnovetsky. The creator and guardian of the group, masterful and inspired singer, composer, arranger, manager – each of participants of the sextet, probably, will confirm that without this person ManSound could just never have appeared...

Olga Voichenko. (feat. A. Schilkloper). Charivni Sny. (Magic Dreams)

...the basis of the album is vocal improvisations. And so diversified that every next play surprises you without fail. On the whole, it seems, the music balances somewhere on the verge of hard-bop, besides, it contains some transparent ethnic elements.

Yuliya Roma. Heartbeats.

...Yulia Roma's singing sounds just as that minute of silence before the sunrise, as if blue eyes of a child three-month old, attentively and easily... Music of this voice transforms jazz into soft crystal, it is so masterful that it does not attract any superfluous attention – but you cannot actually stop listening, noticing, feeling – and the sun rises, and the heart elate...
